Second Readings: a mini-review

Jonathan Yardley, book critic for the Washington Post, wrote an occasional column about books he remembered fondly but hadn't re-read in some time.  Second Readings is the anthology collecting these columns.

This book took me a while to read, mostly because I haven't read even half the books Yardley talks about.  I think I've read only 10 of the books Yardley reviewed.  Ouch.  It made for hard reading because a) if it sounded good, I didn't want to spoil the book for later, and b) I didn't have an opinion to contrast (and I don't think we have overlapping taste).

Still, a good book in general and I found a number of things to add to my TBR.
